August Bank Holiday Monday sees the return of the Enfield CC It’s a Knockout family fun day to DHL. What proved to be an outstanding day last year is expected to be even bigger and better this year. In 2016 over 20 teams of 10 people competed under blue skies to win the top prize and a donation to a charity of their choice.
Over 20 teams have already entered this years challenge and with a substantial crowd also expected to attend again, this years competition should prove great fun and highly popular.
Again the day will be complimented by a number of stalls, can bars and plenty of other entertainment.
If you would like to enter a team or if you’re interested in locating a stall, please contact the club via email on the website or phone or Jack Cook or any member of the ECC social committee.

Enfield CC plan to mount a clock above the door of our tea room at the Clayton end of DHL. The clock will be in memory of our former player, Captain and Chairman, Geoff Dixon.
Geoff recently passed away after a short illness, but will forever be remembered as a Championship and Cup winning Captain, as well as long serving club official culminating in a lengthy stint as Chairman.
The clock will be funded by donations, and anybody wishing to do so can make a contribution by contacting the club or our Vice Chairman, Robin Bracewell.

Here are the details of Geoffs funeral arrangements-
The funeral will take place on Tuesday 6th of June at All Saints, Clayton-le-Moors from 10:30am. Then afterwards at Enfield CC.
Eileen has asked that only family attend the crematorium please.
On Friday June 9th are expecting to be visited by none other than Jeff Stelling. Jeff and friends will be walking from St James’ Park to the other St James’ Park which is Newcastle to Exeter for the none footy geeks. As the title says 15 marathons in 15 days.
This is a charity event, and to be precise Sky Sports football pundit Jeff, and friends will be walking 400 miles in 15 days between 45 football clubs raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. It is a fairly high profile event and he will be joined by other sports personalities and members of the public along the way each day and they are hoping to raise £500k.
This is the event (we are Day 8 of 15 – Oldham to Accrington): https://prostatecanceruk.org/get-involved/march-for-men/jeff-stellings-march-for-men
jeff and his charity heroes will be arriving at DHL around 5-6pm and will be stopping off for some well earned refreshments and a short rest. I’m sure they will welcome any contributions to this great cause whilst resting a DHL. Visit the link above to pledge your support.
We look forward to seeing you all at Dill Hall Lane.
